Somerset Tories' Upper Class Twit of the Year Contest

The betting for this prestigious event has been thrown wide open.

Jacob-Rees Mogg was such a short-priced favourite after his comment that people who had not been to Oxbridge were "potted plants" that bookies in Crewkerne and Midsomer Norton had already paid out.

Now (according to the Daily Mail, so it must be true) David Heathcoat-Amery has made a late bid for the title:
Black Labour MP Dawn Butler has made a formal complaint about former Tory Minister David Heathcoat-Amory, claiming he insulted her and a group of ethnic-minority visitors to Parliament, telling them: "The place is going to wrack and ruin. They are letting anyone in these days."
Thanks to Hot Ginger and Dynamite for the leads.
